The setup described in the article was tested only with the product releases mentioned above. You may choose to use different versions. But the source code will not work without modifications with NW04s releases before SPS7 and MDM Server releases before 5.5 SP4
The CAF GP public API has changed in NW04s SPS07 as compared to SPS06 (see SAP note 924776 for details). As a result the Guided Procedure from the guide will not work with releases before SPS07.
If you experience difficulties (in particular connection problems to the MDM server) you may need to make changes to the source code. Follow the instructions in section Extending the application.
It is recommended that you update the file MDM4J.jar in the library DC libmdm1 to the version that matches the MDM Server version that you have installed.
